World Heritage Project - The World Heritage Project employs a fully integrated approach that combines the power of Media, Social Enterprise, and Philanthropy in order to bring regenerative solutions to the vulnerable communities and places of our world.
DualCurrency Systems - The growing global economic crisis bids us to revamp our outdated financial systems and monetary tools. The solution lies where few individuals and organizations are even looking; in the very nature of money itself. Behind the illusion of scarce material and financial resources, lies a reality of abundant renewable resources and a high-tech global infrastructure to distribute them.
DualCurrency Systems (DCS) pursues sustainable global economic development strategies through Money Innovation and next generation payment systems.
In 1997, the company was awarded two U.S. Patents for its novel DualCurrency Pricing, Accounting and Transaction Settlement system. The system manages transactions in a combination of U.S. dollars and noncash financial instruments, such as loyalty rewards, barter dollars or business scrip.
DCS has designed a DualCurrency payment system and Virtual Community Warehouse to manage innovative incentive programs, including HealthBucks, wellness incentives to lower employer and employee health care costs; EcoBucks, sustainable living incentives, to reward behaviors such as recycling, carpooling and alternative energy use; and Community Service Dollars, volunteer incentives to promote healthy communities.
Because of challenges in raising money and getting its system into the market, the company has put its two business methods patents for restructuring the financial services industry into an auction to be held on October 30, 2008 in Chicago.
